RISC completes Competent Person’s Report for prospective resources in block 3B/4B, Orange Basin, South Africa for Toronto Stock Exchange

RISC Advisory was engaged by Africa Oil Corp. to prepare a Competent Person’s Report for prospective resources in block 3B/4B, Orange Basin, South Africa in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 51-101 using the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (COGEH) and the Petroleum Resources Management System 2018 (PRMS). RISC’s report provides an evaluation of prospective resources from a prospect inventory identified using 3D seismic data and follows completion of the reprocessing of 2,200 km2 of 3D seismic data and play-opening discoveries in Namibia including TotalEnergies’ Venus discovery and Shell’s Graff, La Rona, and Jonker light oil discoveries. These discoveries prove the existence of a working petroleum system for light oil, gas condensate and gas in the geological play fairway. The proven reservoirs in Graff and Venus discoveries are similar to Cretaceous reservoirs and geological plays that would be targeted in the Africa Oil 3B/4B Exploration Right. Prospects in Block 3B/4B were identified using 3D seismic data to assess the presence of seismic attributes including amplitude-variation-with-offset (“AVO”) or direct hydrocarbon indicators (“DHI’s”).
